Présentation de l'éditeur

The silo has appointed a new sheriff. Her name is Juliette, and she comes not from the shadows of deputies, but from the depths of the down deep.

But what does being a mechanic have to do with upholding the law? And how will she be able to concentrate on the silo's future when she is surrounded by the ghosts of its past?

Before she can even settle in, the whirring gears of the silo begin to grind anew. Things aren't right. And the people whose help she needs the most are gone.

If Juliette isn't careful, she'll soon be among them.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Insanely good! The best WOOL yet! 14 décembre 2011
Par Wade McGinnis - Publié sur
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
I had the suspicion early on into "Casting Off" that this was going to be some awesome ride. Juliette - in my opinion - is easily the most compelling protagonist yet in this series, and you find yourself quickly rooting for her. Juliette's scenes with Lukas illustrate a deeper value as the plot unravels... you just KNOW there is so much more to discover about the underlying logic of this WOOL world by what Juliette's new friend offers to the story. I couldn't believe the varying degrees of emotion I felt throughout the last 20% of this book. Usually, I would be annoyed with a series that releases installments so short, but the author has really hit his stride with WOOL and should change NOTHING about how he is presenting these stories to us.

Seriously, read these books!

I was thrilled to see that Wool 3 was out and bought it immediately. Then I proceeded to ignore everyone while I devoured this latest, and certainly the best, installment in Hugh Howey's Wool series. It was absolutely enthralling and there is no question that Hugh is a major talent that will someday be a household name.

Wool 3, Casting Off, starts up almost exactly where 2 left off save that you get a tantalizing glimpse of the near end of the story right up front. For those who don't yet know the series, a bit of a recap is in order. BEWARE: If you haven't read 1 and 2, then this has a tad bit of the spoiler in it and you may want to refrain if you haven't read them yet.

Wool 1 and 2 Spoilers start now.

Wool isn't what you think the title implies. Instead, it refers to the process of Cleaning. Cleaning the outside sensors of the Silo using a type of steel wool is their form of capital punishment because the Outside is deadly and cleaning helps to redeem your crime. Then you die. The Wool world takes place in a post-apocalyptic world..we think..where all of humanity lives in the Silo, a vast underground structure of truly staggering proportions. It's been so long since anyone has been above that they don't even remember such a thing and don't think people ever really did live outside. Even speaking longingly of Outside is a crime worthy of being sent to cleaning. In Wool, we lived the story of the Sheriff and his mistaken beliefs that sent him outside. In Wool 2, we see the story of the Mayor and Deputy as they seek the new Sheriff and open up mysteries and doubts and trouble that turns out to be deadly for one of them. Wool 2 has one of the most beautiful and touching tales of love that I have ever seen in print. Classics pale in comparison.

End Wool 1 and 2 Spoilers.

Wool 3 takes us into the new and frightening life of Juliette, the new Sheriff from the "Deep Down". A former mechanic, she has a keen and unique perception of people and has spent her whole life working tirelessly to keep all in tune and running fine...keeping everyone alive. In 3, we find out so much more about the rich and vibrant world of Silo and all the people and politics that churn endlessly within it. We are thrust headlong into a maelstrom of intrigue, back stabbing, murder and a slowly cracking society. And finally, we're left biting our lips as the final pages introduce another level of mystery that can only be the subject of Wool 4.

The writing is superb and there is no doubt whatsoever that Hugh Howey has talent by the boatload. His imagination is transcribed perfectly in the story and the reader can almost see, smell and taste the world of Silo.

For the inevitable complaints of how short it is, Wool is written in a series of independent novella length works. At some point, putting them together would make a very fat tome, but giving it to us this way is just as satisfying and doesn't require us to wait for years for the satisfaction of reading.

Despite the label of dystopian or post-apocalyptic, this is a series I most heartily recommend to readers of all fiction genre. It's that good.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Thank you Hugh! 3 janvier 2012

I just want to thank Hugh Howey. I read Wool after it popped up as a recommendation, the commented that said the 'cover makes sense after you've read it' or the like, hooked me. I was very, very impressed! I've read all of them now, and have just purchased Wool 4. I can be a fairly jaded reader, particularly with sci-fi, I get fed up with the same old stories told the same old way. Hugh keeps me fascinated! So, thanks Hugh for inspiring me, entertaining me and giving me the childish pleasure of being a "follower" of something! Cheers!!!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Best of the series. 17 juillet 2012

Juliette is an enigmatic character who reminds me of a Salander/Ripley who's caught in the inner workings of the "Matrix" while maneuvering an underground labyrinth the likes of the mining ship in "Alien." How apropos considering Ridley Scott is set to do the movie. There are riveting moments that make you feel like you're watching a car accident -- you don't want to look, close your eyes, but then have to peek through to find out what happens next.

The end left just enough hint of a possible budding relationship if the mystery pans out the way a reader can suspect. I came back for more of this enrapturing serial and can't wait for the movie.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 such a good series 21 février 2012

I love Juliette - it's so refreshing to see a female protagonist who's not only intelligent, but likable. She wears bravery and curiosity so well; there's no questioning her straightforward approach to things. No mind games. As more and more layers are peeled away from the history of the silo's past and the world around it, I just want to know MORE. Addictive? Yes. Can't get to the next installment fast enough.
